Will this processor work with this mobo? I currently have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 (5200+) 2.7ghz. So im looking too upgrade.. would it be worth buying this processor? or should I upgrade my mobo first.. or would this CPU even work for me?

okay.. the only reason i cant buy a processor at this time is cause im upgrading my PSU and GPU right now, and dont really have enough left to get both a mobo and a PSU.. im currently on a onboard 8100.. how much do you think a HD 5770 would bottleneck with my CPU? like i said i plan on upgrading my CPU soon, so i wouldnt be dealing with the bottleneck for long.. would stuff still be playable? im running on a low resolution, so i wouldnt be running it in a high res.. gonna be in 1024*768.. (i am upgrading my monitor soon as well) just kinda curious to how much a bottleneck will happen if I get that card with my CPU (AMD athlon 64 X2 2.7ghz (5200+)

I was told that even though it may bottleneck, its gonna be WAY better then my onboard 8100 i have atm

I like my modular PSU. They're worth the price premium if you care at all about cable management....
